APC Merges With new PDP

share on:

You might not be interested in politics or know much about it but I’m sure you have heard the phrase ‘new PDP’ flying around. The new PDP is a bunch of disgruntled with the PDP and feel they are not having enough action in the party. Well, the group led by Abubakar Baraje have gone ahead and merged with (real?) PDP arch rivals, APC.
The merger was announced at the end of a meeting at the Kano Governors Lodge in Abuja on Tuesday.
Mr. Baraje read the terse communique to journalists at about 11.46 a.m.
The merger means the APC now has its 11 governors and the seven governors who are members of the New PDP; making a total of 18 state governors.
The seven New PDP governors were expected to have a last meeting with President Goodluck Jonathan before taking a decision. The meeting is yet to be held.
Among those at Tuesday’s merger meeting were APC leader and former Lagos State governor, Bola Tinubu; APC National Chairman, Bisi Akande; Kano State Governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso: former Kwara governor and serving senator, Bukola Saraki; former Nasarawa governor and serving senator, Abdullahi Adamu; former Bayelsa governor, Timipre Sylva; and Adamawa State Governor, Murtala Nyako.
Others were former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Masari; Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi; National Secretary of the PDP, Olagunsoye Oyinlola; former Abia governor, Ogbonnaya Onu; former PDP vice chairman, Sam Jaja; Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed; and Niger State Governor, Babangida Aliyu.
As usual, we are recycling leaders and expecting change.
Remember back when they used to tell us we were leaders of tomorrow? I suppose tomorrow really never comes
